Name: United States v. Littlesun
Case #: 04-30300
Court: US Court of Appeals
District 9 Cir
Citation: 444 Fed.3d 1196

Crawford v. Washington does not preclude the use of hearsay testimony at sentencing. Williams v. New York (1949) 337 U.S. 241, which held that the admission of hearsay evidence at sentencing does not violate due process so long as the testimony is accompanied by some minimal indicia of reliability, was not overruled by Crawford, and the federal appellate courts are bound by that precedent.
